MTV Movie and TV Awards predictions 2019: Complete odds in all categories led by ‘Avengers,’ ‘Riverdale’ and more

MTV Movie and TV Awards predictions 2019: Complete odds in all categories led by ‘Avengers,’ ‘Riverdale’ and more
Avengers: Endgame” is tied as the most nominated film at the MTV Movie and TV Awards with four bids, and we think it’ll win all of them when the awards air on June 17: Best Movie, Best Hero (Robert Downey Jr.), Best Villain (Josh Brolin) and Best Fight (Captain America vs. Thanos). That’s according to the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users who have given us their forecasts here in our predictions center. Do you agree that the Marvel blockbuster will achieve a clean sweep?

These awards are decided by MTV fans voting online, so popularity counts for a lot, and it’s hard to get more popular than “Endgame,” which is the second-biggest moneymaker of all time domestically not accounting for inflation ($826 million), and the second-biggest worldwide too ($2.73 billion). In the last 13 years no movie has won without grossing at least $100 million at the domestic box office,

What's Next for the X-Men Movies?

Richard Jordan Jun 5, 2019

With X-Men: Dark Phoenix signalling the end of the current X-Men franchise, we look at where Disney will take the mutants next

Dark Phoenix—the fourth and final film in the First Class quadrilogy—is finally with us, and it definitely marks the end of this X-Men strand as we know it: there's little in the way of new universe-building, the main characters' arcs are all wrapped up, and there aren't even any mid/post-credit stingers to chew over.

It's not really that surprising. Not only does the series feel like it's come to a natural end – unfortunately, with slightly more of a whimper than a bang (check out our review) – but with Disney now having completed its acquisition of Fox, it makes sense that the mutants will be returning to the same stable as that of their creators: Marvel.

So, now that this era of X-Men is drawing to a close,

The emotion-filled 1st trailer for ‘The Goldfinch’ takes flight — could it be an Oscar goldmine?

A 13-year-old boy named Theo Decker accompanies his beloved mother on a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see an exhibition of Dutch masters, including her favorite painting — Carel Fabritius‘ “The Goldfinch,” His world soon turns upside-down after a bomb explodes and kills his mother before his eyes. He escapes injury, but not before he impulsively steals the artwork that he will secretly carry around through the course of his dramatic and drug-filled life.

Donna Tartt‘s chunky best-seller that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction is now a movie starring Ansel Elgort of “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Baby Driver” as Theo and Nicole Kidman as the socialite matriarch of the family who takes in the motherless boy. The drama due to open on Sept. 13 — a prime spot in awards season — is directed by John Crowley, whose 2o15 film “Brooklyn” was up for three Academy Awards: Best Picture,

Stephen King shares his thoughts on the new TV adaptation of The Stand

After spending some five years in development as a feature, it was announced this past January that filmmaker Josh Boone’s (The Fault in Our Stars) adaptation of Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic epic The Stand is heading to the small screen, with CBS All Access granting the project a ten-episode season order.

Appearing on the Post Mortem Podcast, hosted by Mick Garris (director of the 1994 TV miniseries), King has shared his thoughts on this new adaptation, as well as giving a brief update on its progress.

“I like Josh Boone’s work,” said King. “I actually worked with him on his first feature (2012’s Stuck in Love). I couldn’t act in it, which is what he wanted me to do, so I had to be an audio thing. And then he did The Fault in Our Stars, which I thought showed his grasp of the medium. I like him a lot.

The Sun Is Also A Star – Review

Ah, the Spring, when hearts turn to love. But is there room for romance at the multiplex, with a certain Mr. Wick taking out a near-endless platoon of assassins just a couple screens down, next to naughty R-rated romp? Well, the studios seem to think so, especially since this is based on a popular “young adult” novel (The Fault In Our Stars certainly did well five summers ago). Unlike that flick, there’s no “grim reaper” lurking about as he did a couple of months past in Five Feet Apart, though, as we find out, there is a clock “ticking down” on our two incredibly photogenic TV star young lovers. Oh, and one half of the pair is an aspiring college astronomy major, which is why she gets to state the title The Sun Is Also A Star.

After she narrates a post-title collage about humanity and her own past,

Will ‘Avengers: Endgame’ be Marvel’s 3rd winner at the MTV Movie and TV Awards? It still wouldn’t match the ‘Twilight’ saga

Will ‘Avengers: Endgame’ be Marvel’s 3rd winner at the MTV Movie and TV Awards? It still wouldn’t match the ‘Twilight’ saga
The 2019 MTV Movie and TV Award nominations were announced on May 14 with “Avengers: Endgame” leading the way with four bids, tied with TV’s “Game of Thrones” and the documentary “Rbg.” Now you can predict the winners in all 16 categories here in our predictions center. If “Endgame” wins Best Movie it would be the third film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to take top honors, but even then it wouldn’t be the most awarded franchise in history. That honor would still belong to “Twilight.”

These awards are decided by fans voting for the winners online, so franchises with especially passionate fan bases tend to dominate. “The Lord of the Rings” won Best Movie for all three of its installments: “The Fellowship of the Ring” at the 2002 awards, “The Two Towers” in 2003 and “The Return of the King” in 2004. Then the “Twilight” movies won four times in a row: for

Stephen King Shares His Excitement and Optimism Over the New Adaptation of The Stand

Here we are folks, in the prime Stephen King remake time. It seems like everything of his is getting a remake or even a first edition adaptation. In the past few years we’ve had The Dark Tower, Carrie, Pet Sematary, It, as well as the series Mr. Mercedes and Castle Rock to name a few.

Looking at King’s IMDb page is staggering. He has 64 titles that he is somehow involved in that are in development or production. It’s pretty crazy! But it’s also pretty cool because so many of the old film adaptations of King’s movies were made for TV and were hindered by low budgets and by censorship. So it’s nice for fans and King himself to see this series and movies get proper adaptations.

In a recent interview on the podcast Post Mortem, King talked a bit about his feelings on his upcoming project,

Disney Delays New Mutants Yet Again, X-Men Spinoff Won't Arrive Until 2020

Disney Delays New Mutants Yet Again, X-Men Spinoff Won't Arrive Until 2020
Here's something new that sounds like something we've heard before, mostly because it is. The New Mutants has had its release date pushed back. Again. This isn't the first time the troubled X-Men spin-off has been delayed and, at this point, we're not confident in saying it's going to be the last. That said, for now, Disney has finally locked down a new release date for the project after they inherited it as part of the Fox deal, which officially closed a couple of months back. It's their problem now.

Disney recently updated their entire release schedule, including projects they ended up with as a result of the Fox deal, with some Disney dates announced up through 2027. The calendar included a new date for The New Mutants, which is now scheduled to arrive on April 3, 2020. For those keeping score at home, that is a full two years after the movie

Shailene Woodley Says Therapy Dramatically Altered Her Life
Shailene Woodley is opening up about seeking therapy after struggling with how she viewed herself.

The 27-year-old Big Little Lies actress graces one of InStyle‘s June cover issues—alongside her costars Reese Witherspoon, Zoë Kravitz, Laura Dern and Nicole Kidman—in which she discusses having issues with confidence.

“The honest answer to that is so many things are changing for me at the moment,” Woodley said. “I recently started therapy, and it has dramatically altered my life.”

If you missed part 1, The Sharks, that's here.

With the casting of Steven Spielberg's remake of West Side Story complete, and planning to shoot this very summer, let's meet the Jets.

Ansel Elgort (Tony)

The 25 year old movie star has been threatening to do a movie musical for awhile now (he was once attached to a Hans Christian Anderson biopic that seems to have been trapped in development hell) and is finally getting around to it with West Side Story. Major credits include leading roles in The Fault in Our Stars, Billionaire Boys Club, Baby Driver, and the forthcoming drama The Goldfinch.

Disney Knocks New Mutants Off 2019 Release Slate, Is It Ever Coming Out?

Disney Knocks New Mutants Off 2019 Release Slate, Is It Ever Coming Out?
We will get to see The New Mutants someday, it's just not clear when that's going to happen or how it's going to happen. This X-Men spinoff has been in the works for a very, very long time now, with the original release date pegged for April 2018. But that day came and went and the project has since been sitting in the dreaded land of uncertainty. Unfortunately, the Disney/Fox deal closing didn't help that uncertainty. In fact, it's just added another wrinkle, as it looks like the troubled project has been delayed yet again.

According to a new report, Disney has decided to delay the release of The New Mutants, which is currently set to arrive on August 2. There is no word on just how long it's going to be delayed and this information is coming from an anonymous source from the Fox ranks. So, with this kind of thing,

The New Mutants may receive a theatrical release after all

Given its numerous release date delays, enforced reshoots (which are seemingly no longer taking place), and the Disney acquisition of Fox, giant question marks have been hanging over the status of director Josh Boone’s (The Fault in Our Stars) X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.

Having been stuck in limbo for the past year or so, recent rumours had suggested that Disney would be pulling the film from its planned August cinema release, and that the movie would likely end up debuting on a streaming service such as Hulu or Disney+.

Well, it seems that may not be the case after all, as Deadline is reporting that Disney indicated during its CinemaCon presentation this week that the film remains part of its theatrical schedule for 2019, while it was also included as part of a Dolby Vision release slate shown at the convention.

The New Mutants was originally set to open in April of last year,

Review: Five Feet Apart aimlessly wallows in teen love through sickness, sweetness and sappiness despite its good intentions

One can never have enough treacly teen romancers that dutifully pander to their youthful fanbase, correct? Director/producer Justin Baldoni's two-hour saccharine-coated sudser Five Feet Apart does not miss a sentimental beat when conveying its mawkish message about compromised young love at the menacing hands of terminal illness. The Clearasil crowd--at least those that will be enticed by Baldoni's melodramatic muck--should feel rather manipulated by the film's ailing version of Romeo and Juliet. Themes of teenaged pretty people, the "fill in the blank" type of sickness at hand, and an unapologetic attraction between said inflicted youngsters make for the  foundation of the teary-eyed tendencies in Five Feet Apart. Recent teen love stories regarding romance and illness such as 2014's The Fault in Our Stars, 2017's Everything, Everything and this year's Then Came You do indeed tug...
